We stumbled across this restaurant by accident. Were reading the menu and noticing the awards and a girl came out and told us the meal was fabulous. So we gave it a try and were not disappointed! The Caprese salad was the best ever! First night we had the gnocchi and lasagna and fell in love with the restaurant. Went... More

Nice location with an attractive variety of Italian dishes. Don´t get confused with the entrance! It looks small if you enter but is really a large place when going downstairs.

This is a very popular place, in fact we booked it beforehand. We all had pasta, rigorously homemade and delicious.

Dinner was amazing, we tried different pasta dishes that were beyond great, paired with an excellent wine. Service was very very good and the restaurant has a fantastic and cozy atmosphere. It was a great all rounded experience: delicious dinner, great wine and a fabulous time.

We arrived to Rome pretty late, the concierge suggested walking through the Piazza Popolo and we'd find a good restaurant. I'm not sure if this is the place he suggested, but it looked fine [jet lag and all]. We ordered wine, and pasta...with a cheese appetizer. The waiter brought bread to go along with the cheese [extra charge] and our... More

We've been here two years ago and now decided to return, because it is the best Rome restaurant, I believe. Grazie mille!

This place was in our Rome guide book so we gave it a go, the place itself was very atmospheric, busy and friendly. We decided to have the Prosciutto ham and Buffalo mozzarella for starter which was nice but a small serving compared to Fiaschetteria Beltramme restaurant in Via del Croce nearby. We had pizzas for mains which were very... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
